Represent root 5 on number line

To draw square root of 5 on a number line, following steps are to be followed.

**Step 1:** Draw a number line. Mark O as the zero on the number line.

**Step 2:** Mark a point A as -5 on the number line.

**Step 3:** Mark a point C as 1 on the number line.

**Step 4:** Mark a point B as the mid-point of AC.

**Step 5:** With point B as the centre and radius as AB draw a semicircle.

**Step 6:** From O draw a perpendicular line to the number line that intersects the previous drawn semi-circle at D. Here OD = square root of 5.

**Step 7:** With O as centre and radius as OD, draw an arc that intersects the number line at point E. Here E is the point square root of 5 on the number line.
